Over Rule a Dynamic Function?

NewApexCoder Newbie
Currently Being Moderated
I have a form with a DA_Name field, a Request_Date field, and a Processing_Date field. The DA_Name field is a pop up sleect list. The Processing_date field is a text field where you can input a date.

- The Request_Date field is actually queried from another view upon selecting a specific DA_Name.
- i.e....if you select Ben as the name, it'll return Ben's corresponding request_date.
- This query is controlled by a dynamic action

However, there are some names that don't have a corresponding request_date, so it just returns a NULL value to the form. I have made this field a text field as a date picker. When I select a name that returns a NULL value, I want to be able to type in, (or pick the date - date picker) the date.

Even when a date is returned from a a name, I would like to to be able to change it if need be. Everytime I try and do so, it doesn't capture or save what I typed in. Any suggestion on how to handle this
